It’s Monday

What kind of Monday are you having?

I’m struggling with mine.  More coffee.  And a kick in the hiney.

Monday

Until next year, stay inspired and be crafty!

AnnRe’s Etsy Picks – Christmas Edition

In addition to beautiful shawls, unique crochet jewelry, and cozy warm scarfs from AnnRe Handmade, there are lots of great ideas for giving handmade gifts for everyone on your Christmas list.  Here are a few of my favorites from other Etsy Sellers:

 

blogLincolnshireFennsheepLincolnshireFenn

I absolutely LOVE sheep, but the rabbits, deer, and hedgehogs are so cute!  These needle felt kits are not only GORGEOUS, but a clever gift for that artsy member of your family and those who want to be.  The kits are great for beginners too and include everything needed and detailed instructions with photos.   (Located in the UK)

 

blogTheRedWoodBarnornamentTheRedWoodBarn

Of course ornaments and buffalo plaid!  I love the combination…and red/black are great together anyway.  This ornament is a good size (5″ in diameter) and personalized for you.  A great gift for all the families on your list.

 

 

 

blogdaintybeancarmatdaintybean

When my son was little, he would play with his little cars for hours.  Everywhere he went it seemed he had one of those little cars tucked into his pocket.  This folding car mat is a great way to not only play with the cars, but travel with them.  The mat is about 18×20 inches, has a nice little zippered pouch to store the cars, and folds up to a nice 9×6 inch rectangle with a Velcro tab.

 

blogClovisAvenueDesignsOnsieClovisAvenueDesigns

It is so fun to Christmas shop for babies, and Etsy is FULL of amazing handcrafted baby gifts.  This onsie (or bodysuit) is perfect for your favorite little one as they are always so kissable!

 

blogcandybuttonusaheadbandcandybuttonusa

And for the toddlers on your list, this headband is just AMAZING!  I want one for myself!!  Beautiful felt flowers in muted Christmas colors, and adorned with beads and pearls.

 

 

 

blogbusybeezchickadeeznecklacebusybeezchickadeez

There is always something magic about snow globes, and this necklace lets you take one with you everywhere you go!  The hand stamped copper tag can even be customized for that special person on your Christmas list.  Pendant measures 1 1/2″ long by 1″ at the widest point. It is attached to a 26″ textured cable chain that has a sturdy lobster clasp.

 

 

BlogKSLleatherfactorybraceletKSLleatherfactory

I personally think the men in my life are much harder to shop for, but this personalized leather bracelet is something that is stylish and memorable.  I would even wear this!  They have many different styles and you’ll be sure to find one that is ideal for your giving.

 

 

 

That is it for this edition of my Etsy Picks.  My wish for you this a season is peace, love, and joy as make memories with your loved ones!  Have fun shopping handmade sellers.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Until next time, stay inspired and be crafty!

AnnRe’s Etsy Picks – Rain Edition

It’s raining today.
Soggy, dreary, damp, gray.

rainy

Might as well have some fun with it, huh?  So today’s Etsy picks might have rain in mind, but they’re sure to brighten your day.

Let’s go!

etsyrainguageMy first pick today is from the Etsy shop Naturally Unique (Naturallyuniquerock). They make “Functional Rock Creations from Lake Superior” and my pick is a rain gauge.  If it’s going to rain, might as well know how much you’re getting, right?  Made with a rock base and wrapped in copper wire, this rain gauge is a great find for your favorite gardener or weather buff.

etsyrainperfumeMy second pick is from Skin Like Butter (SkinLikeButter), luxury bath and body products.  I love the smell of fresh rain, how about you?  I know it’s hard to buy perfume online, I get that.  This cute roll on “Rain” scented perfume for $8.50 is the perfect size and price to try.  Even better, she offers samples sets so you can smell them all first before choose the one you want.

etsyrainchainNext pick is from Steel Ribbons (steelribbons), modern metal art that is as functional as it is beautiful.  I’ve always been fascinated by wind chimes and rain chains, and as a gardener I’m always looking for something interesting for my yard.  Rain chains are an old fashioned, decorative way to channel rain and they make a beautiful water feature for yards and gardens.  I’ve seen them made with wood, glass, but the simplicity and design of this rain chain is just stunning!

retromugSince I love coffee, I couldn’t resist picking a rainy themed mug.  I found one from Retro Rocket Antiques (RETROROCKETANTIQUES). This vintage mug has an adorable picture on the front and on the back reads “a friend is someone who lends you an umbrella on a rainy day.”  Awww!  Fill me up, buttercup!

 

moneyboxLast pick for today is from Pretty Whittle Things (PrettyWhittleThings). Everyone needs to save for a rainy day, right?  How clever to have such a great looking money box to do it with?  The window on the front lets you see just how big your fund is getting.  What will YOU do with your rainy day fund?

I hope you are staying dry and you enjoyed today’s Etsy picks.   I’m going to put on my rain boots and jump in some puddles.  Ok, maybe I won’t jump, but I’ll certainly walk in them.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Until next time, stay inspired and be crafy!

UPS Strike? What if?

America may soon face its biggest labor strike in decades

upsI sure hope this doesn’t happen, but it could.  It happened in 1997 and lasted 15 days.

I mainly use United States Postal Service to do my shipping, but I do ship UPS or FedEx upon request.  USPS has been the most affordable choice for shipping my creations to you, my customers.  At this time I don’t see any disruption in my shipping process if there is a strike, but the longer a strike lingers it may start to take USPS a little longer to deliver as people begin to look for other shipping options.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens with UPS and hope for the best, but know that it should have little or no effect on your package handmade deliveries via USPS.
